Talbot-lago T26 GSL 1953-1955 – Just a beautiful car

In the mid 30s of the 20th century, the Sunbeam-Talbot-Darraq group of companies fell into disrepair and went bankrupt. In order to reduce costs, the management decided to close automobile production in France, but one of the leading engineers of the department, Anthony Lago, managed to acquire an enterprise in the city of Surin, where he began to produce magnificent top-class sports cars under the Talbot-Lago brand. Luxury Talbot-Lago with the bodies of the famous atelier Figoni & Falaschi and Saoutchik are recognized as classics of automotive design, but there were also simply beautiful models, such as the Talbot-lago T26 GSL.

Talbot-lago sales were never high, but by 1952 they were reduced to almost zero. Lago did not give up and all the forces and threw the available funds on the development of a new model Talbot-lago T26 GSL. The pretty good chassis of the current T26 GS was redesigned and lightened. The excellent 4.5-liter six-cylinder engine received three Solex carburetors, which provided a power increase of 20 hp to an impressive 210 hp Talbot-lago T26 GSL was one of the fastest cars among contemporaries, also very beautiful. The body was a freelance designer, Carlo Delais, who was called, almost by French, Giovanni Michelotti.


The Talbot-lago T26 GSL debuted in Paris in 1953 was an elegant car in French, but as it often does not have commercial success. By the beginning of 1955, according to various data, it was possible to release from 19 to 21 copies. No more than 10 have survived, which makes the T26 GSL a very rare and valuable car.

The copy presented in the photos in the summer of 2015 was sold by the auction house RM Sotheby’s for an impressive $ 385,000, and in August 2016 it will be put up for auction again. For the first time the car was registered in France in 1954. In the 70s, it was the everyday car of writer Alain Spitz, the author of books on the history of Talbot, and others. In 1991, the chassis and engine were completely restored, and the body was grounded, after which the T26 GSL went down restoration in 1995. Since then, the car is in excellent condition. Nice to see!

Hello! I — blogger, love of God and people. Beautiful pictures — it’s very good, but we must remember that in front of us waiting for eternity and where we spend it, depends only on us!

Everyone in some sins, but the severity of this sin saved us JESUS CHRIST!

And if we repent of our sins and call upon his heart and Christ, we shall be saved from hell, which is prepared for the devil, but the devil does not want to go there himself and tempts people to sin. But God loves us, because he gave for us on the death of the most precious thing he had — his Son Jesus.

Pray a prayer: Heavenly Father! I ask you — I’m sorry, I repent of my sins, because I lived without you. Jesus Christ, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior, make me be what You want me to. I thank thee that in eternity I will be with you! Amen.
